When I found out I would be going to Paraguay for 8 weeks with the Amigos program, I thought it would be a good idea to learn some Guarani, their native language. My parents had taken Spanish lessons from Camila and knew she also speaks Guarani. In five or six lessons with Camila I developed a good foundation that helped me a lot in Paraguay. My host family was so excited to speak their first language with me, and the foundation I got from Camila prepared me to continue learning from them as well.
